Rainbow Ribbon Salad
So many people peel their veggies just to throw away the peels…the best part! Veggie skins are packed with nutrients and flavor so why not do something awesome with them? This recipe uses different colored carrots with cucumber skins to make a vibrant and flavorful salad.

Instructions

Ribbon Salad
  1. Peel all veggie skins using the the julienne peeler.
  2. Add peeled ribbons to a mixing bowl and toss in slaw dressing (or dressing of choice).
  3. Add dressed ribbons to a large bowl with salad greens. Toss until greens and ribbons are coated with dressing. Finished salad as you want. I like to use seasonal veggies from the garden like sweet peas and squash blossoms along with some nuts or seeds for texture.
Recipe Notes

The idea with this recipe is to utilize the skins of vegetables that might otherwise get discarded AND make the salad bright and colorful. If you want to add more texture to the salad try adding ribbons of jicama. For more color try adding ribbons of beats or purple cabbage.
